BSOD, i suspect hal.dll may be the cause

i have attached the dump file. i have also used bluescreenview.exe and this is what i got



i have also ran System File Checker and nothing was wrong. what worries me is the bug check code 0x00000124 supposedly it is hardware error.

so if it is hardware, can someone help me find which hardware it is? and yes my cpu is OCed but i have already tested stability so it is fine

refer to my system specs for info on my system

There is no way to test while you are overclocked. You may have been stable once, but you are having BSOD'S now.

Of note these drivers are probably not the cause but are from as far back as 2005 and relate to Overclocking. This one at least needs to be made current. Related to RTCore64.sys MSI Afterburner from Micro-Star Int'l Co. Ltd. Yours 2005!!

After you revert back to stock and have updated if you are still BSOD'ing upload the DMPS

How To Find Drivers:
Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

well i just finished a 3hr stability test for my cpu and it was fine, i will probably do a longer one sometime this weekend overnight just to make sure stability is good. so would i still have to revert back to stock settings?

also about the msi afterburner i have to update the latest version? i just checked their website i i currently have the up to date version.

and to update drivers i simply just uninstall the program related to these drivers and install the latest versions?

as for these:
vcsvad.sys 11/16/2008 5:51:18 AM
ALSysIO64.sys 4/19/2009 3:41:04 PM
intelsmb.sys 5/13/2009 3:31:00 AM

Yes, revert to stock settings to ensure that anything else that's not related to your overclock isn't the problem.

If the rtcore64.sys (from 2005) is the newest version you may have to remove it for it cant know how to work in win 7 given it was written at least 5 years prior to its release.

Good question. One way you can prevent it from loading is to rename it rtcore64.bak

It may be in programs and features as part of a utility package. Im not sure.
